look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy, amber, nice big off-white head that sticks around and sticks to the glass. Smells of carmel malts nad pine and green hops. Tastes much the smae. well balnced in my mind but hop bitterness linger quite a long time. Smooth, medium body that coats the mouth with nice hop oils. I think I could easliy drink a six-pack...oh, wait, I did.

A solid brew across the board.

Poured froam a bottle into a perfect.

Pours a medium gold straw wirth decent clarity and a thin head that recedes to a ring.

Aroma is of weak hop and not mch else.

Flavor is sweet malt, slightly corny and possible funky, The middle breaks to a slightly bitter hop with dry quality. Finishes dry but a little weak on the flavor, some warming alcohol on the finish.

Mouthfeel is thin, crisp and not objectionable. Very bubbly and crisp.

A little sub par, but not horrible.

There is no freshness date on the bottle. This has an amber colour with a rather head and is fairly cloudy. When I sniffed into the bottle it seemed very much a herbal hop concoction with a rather metallic nose, but in my glass it smells much sweeter.

It adopts the numerous miniscule bubbles approach to carbonation and begins sweetly before giving way to a bitter orange rind hoppiness. Not bad at all, but not oustanding for an IPA of this strength says this spoiled adopted Oregonian (when I lived in Ohio I would have swooned over this stuff). It seems to get sweeter and change from orange rind to ruby red grapefruit as it warms. Don't serve too cold!

Where to start with this brew. This brew pours an orangish gold with a big bubbly and foamy white IPA head that never goes away. Aroma is very hoppy but surprisingly fruity and sweet. Most other IPAs have a syrupy sweet smell but this one is definitely lighter. Hops oils are big with a with oranges and tangerines filling out the smell. Those fruits come through in the sweet taste, but instead of just a one-note citrus brew, lots of pineapple and clementines in this brew mixed with a little passion fruit. Very hoppy and bitter at the end, very reminiscent of Dogfish Head's 60 minute IPA.

Wow, this was a great find that I just bought on a whim. One of the best and most balanced IPAs I have ever had.

Looks good; a hazy gold with white foam that leaves some lace and falls to a collar. Funky nose...very vegetal smelling, corn-like with flowers in the way background, not so good. Tastes better than it smells; hop are spicy but a little bit of that corn pops up towards the finish, which is fairly bitter. A smooth drinker for sure, but off-flavors are disconcerting. Bitterness builds in a pleasant way. Good, but not great. I would like to give this another try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

22 oz. bomber served chilled in a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy peach color with a large and frothy off-white head. The head eventually settles down to a layer of froth. Nice blobs of foam typical of an IPA are left on the glass.

Smell: Pronounced grapefruit aroma with faint lemon, orange, and spruce notes. A cornucopia of hop aromas.

Taste: Sharp and tangy grapefruit smacks you upside the head. Then you get some bitter pine flavors on the finish. No malt taste at all.

Mouthfeel: Light in body, very puckering from the hop tastes.

Drinkability: Well, if you like hops, you might like this. Very unbalanced. Certainly better than Hazed and Infused, but not by much. It looks and smells good, though. Would it have hurt them to have used some malt in the brewing process?

Thanks to prAna for the sample.

12 ounce bottle, shaker pint.

A - A light yellowish amber color. About a finger of white head.

S - A nice piny hop aroma on the nose.

T - Piny hops lead the way then give way to a tea like flavor. A bit of sweetness with a tiny bit of alcohol tinge come through. Then the taste finishes bitter.

M - A little bit thin for the style but fairly nice.

D - Not bad for a hop fix. Definitely accomplishes that end.

A - Pours a hazy gold color with only a finger of head which sticks to the glass all the way down.

S - Strong but not overpowering citrusy hops, with some earthy notes.

T - Mostly hops, but a bit of malt balances it out in the middle. A fresh and well hopped IPA.

M/D - Mouthfeel is exactly what I want from an ipa, a simple easy drinker with a subdued enough hop taste that I enjoy it but am not blown away by it.
